after 4.5 years of school, two degrees and an internship at paste magazine, i still couldn’t find a decent job in journalism. so i signed up to teach english in south korea for a year. everyone kept telling me, “you should start a blog!” so i started a blog. if you scroll back through old entries, you’ll find lots of photos from my travels in the ROK and a 10-month backpacking trip through europe. now, this blog acts as a brain dump for all the things i write as a member of the culture commentariat and the things i come up with in bed late at night or early in the morning.
